The bustools GitHub repository is https://github.com/BUStools/bustools. Currently, bustools can be built on Linux, Mac, Rock64 (ARM) and Windows. If building on Mac, we suggest using a package manager such as Homebrew to download dependencies. Homebrew is easily installed by copying and pasting the command below at a terminal prompt:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Other dependencies are included, or can be installed using package managers on the system. Instructions for building bustools from source without a package manager are identical to kallisto, and can be found here.
